When I find a really nice picture on the internet, I usually spend some time looking for more information about it. That’s how I discovered Tim Sklyarov.
“My name is Tim and I’m graphic designer, photography enthusiast and aspiring runner currently residing in the capital of the Planet Awesome – New York City. This website is my personal playground for sharing my artwork, photography and personal ramblings with the world.” (from his personal website).
“So I was heading to Las Vegas for a business meeting the other day and was lucky enough to sit on a right side of the plane — did some quick tilt-shift aerial photos of New York. Nothing super special, but gives some sense of how many skyscrapers are there on the island of Manhattan”
“For you who are not familiar with New York City geography — right in the middle is Downtown Manhattan(where the Wall Street is). Right below there are two bridges – iconic Brooklyn Bridge and my favorite Manhattan Bridge. […] That thin strip of land squeezed between Manhattan and Queens is my least favorite part of the city — Roosevelt Island.”
I’ve loved these aerial views, anyway Tim lives and loves New York, so you’ll fine several other albums about New York on his website, like:
– New York at Night
– New York through the eyes of a road bicycle
